Safety Information 




y experience a seizure when 
exposea to certain visual images, including flashing lights or 
patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no 
history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition 
that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while 
watching video games. 



These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including 
lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking 
or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary 
loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness 
or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or 
striking nearby objects. 

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any 
of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children 
about the above symptoms-children and teenagers are more likely 
than adults to experience these seizures. 

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced 
by sitting farther from the television screen, using a smaller 
television screen, playing in a well-lit room, and not playing when 
you are drowsy or fatigued. 

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or 
epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing. 

Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction 
Manual contains important health and safety information that you 
should read and understand before using this software. 

AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR TELEVISION 

Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially 
front- or rear-projection types, can be damaged if any video games, 
including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented 
during the normal course of gameplay may "burn in" to the screen, 
causing a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all 
times, even when video games are not being played. 
Similar damage may occur from static images created 
when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult 
,-*\ your television owner's manual to determine if 
%{ .. video games can be played safely on your set. If 
you are unable to find this information in the 

owner's manual, contact your television dealer or 
the manufacturer to determine if video games can be 
played safely on your set.

The Team 




BRUTUS 



rerai, maie. 



ROLE Shock trooper. 

SPECIAL ABILITY 

Spirit of Yengar Brutus can 

upon the power of the Feral deity 

Vengar. While infused with this 

supernatural power, Brutus can charge 

his enemies, killing them instantly. 

SKILLS 

Sense of the Beast He can sense 
enemies and traps, and perceive 
things others might miss. 

Spirit Warrior In Spirit of Vengar mode, Brutus can 
regenerate his health, see a creature's essence, and 
become more resistant to damage. 



As a warrior, Brutus is a lethal mix of speed, stealth, 
and strength. When not pursuing mission goals, he will 
typically back up the operatives, working to flank or 
rush an engaged enemy. Brutus picks his fights wisely. 
He'll call for help if it's too much for him to handle, 
and retreat if he starts to lose a fight. However, if 
another squadmate is still in the fray, he'll refuse 
to leave. Although he can carry a single heavy weapon, 
his weapon of choice is the rifle, and he always has at 
least one. 



SPECIAL ABILITY 
Advanced Targeting Flint 
raises her rifle, ready for 
any target to show itself. 
While in this mode, Flint 
will automatically target any 
enemies that are within a wide 
area in front of her. Flint 
cannot reload while using this 
ability, and will drop out of 
Advanced Targeting if she runs 
i out of ammo. 

SKILLS 

Air Recycling Flint's synthetic body does not 
require air to operate, and she is resistant to 
gas-based attacks. 

Threat Analysis While in Advanced Targeting mode, 
Flint's enhanced combat abilities display the current 
health of the enemy within her sights. 

Advanced Sniping Advanced synthetic eye implants allow 
Flint to zoom farther with sniper rifles than any other 
character, and to take out most combatants with a single, 
well-placed headshot. 



Flint is a sniper whose augmented abilities give her 
lethal accuracy with any weapon. Her preferred weapons 
are sniper rifles and pistols. Flint cannot use heavy 
weapons. She is supremely confident in her ability, yet 
she is the voice of cynicism. Flint adopts a cautious 
hunting style of combat-she prowls close to walls and 
tries to position herself high above the enemy, picking 
them off with ease.

, GENDER Human, female. 

ROLE Scout. 

,PECIAL ABILITY 

Stealth Hawk can move without making a 

sound-she is virtually invisible. She is 

I difficult to detect, except when firing 
a weapon; excellent for sneaking behind 
enemy turrets and taking them down. 

SKILLS 

Powerblade Hawk carries a deadly 
Powerblade that is designed to 
silently eliminate targets. Although 
most effective when striking unseen 
from behind her target, it can be 
used as an assault weapon. Equip and 
use the Powerblade as you would an 
— inventory item. 

./pass Hawk's tech skills enable her to bypass 
computer and electrical systems that would otherwise 
sound alarms. 

Awareness Hawk possesses a level of awareness that 
allows her to see things that others miss. 



Hawk is an adept, careful scout, and believes in 
gathering facts before bulldozing in-a tactical style 
that sometimes puts her at odds with Tex. Hawk is the 
fastest and quietest member of the team. She has the 
least armor and cannot carry large weapons.

GENDER Human, m 

Heavy assault trooper. 

SPECIAL ABILITY 

Berserker Tex fires both weapons 
nee. Tex cannot reload while 
ng this ability. 

SKILLS 

Assault Gear Tex uses the heaviest 

armor and weaponry of the team. 

Explosives Disarmament Tex can 

disarm enemy explosives, from 
simple explosives and mines to 
complex devices. 

As an operative, Tex is a bruiser. When left solo in 
a firefight, Tex will methodically seek and destroy. 
Nothing pretty about it; he'll try to outgun anything 
he sees. Tex fights with rifles, cannons, missiles, and 
other heavy weapons. He scorns light weapons and would 
^ather throw a pistol than fire it.
